Windows 7: File Visibility in 32bit vs. 64bit Win7

Solution!

Here's the solution from WinZip Tech Support. I tried it and it does fix the problem.

On the 64bit PC use "sysnative" instead of "system32" as follows:

c:\windows\SYSNATIVE\tasks\*.* instead of c:\windows\system32\tasks\*.*

Explained in the following article:

Thanks to all here who jumped in to help.

I'm not exactly sure what that's saying with regards to your zip issue, but you got a solution.

Glad you got it fixed, and thanks for letting me know.

It's not really a WinZip issue per se. It's about how a 32bit program (WinZip) behaves in a 64bit environment when trying to access certain folders. I read the MSDN article and I understand the basic concept.

So did I to a certain point. I just didn't get the point with Winzip, especially since Winzip is supposed to be 64-bit compatible since version 11.1 and you have 15.

WinZip 11.1 introduced:
  • certification for Windows Vista designation
  • new Vista toolbar and program icons
  • new Vista explorer-style user interface
  • support for 64-bit Windows Vista and Windows XP
  • support for 32-bit Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000
  • new MSI packages for customized installations
Granted is doesn't specifically say Windows 7 but....

The problem was actually caused by the command line I wrote not by WinZip itself. I told WinZip to look in a particular folder but given that this is 64bit Win7 I should have specified a different folder. I didn't know that but now I do.
